Answer:  PIT STOP

(Could there possibly BE a stinkier pun than this???  This is the kind of pun that every middle school kid can relate to.  Elementary school kids might sweat, but they generally don’t have a funk until they start approaching puberty.  I guess it’s a hormonal thing.  We all have fairly unique scents, but society has taught us to keep them at bay.  I think George Carlin had a quip about wearing bay leaves under his armpits.  It won’t stop the sweat, but you’ll smell like soup!  Man, I miss that guy.

All four of the clue words are ralis95 clue word database hall of famers.  There was no hesitation for me this morning.  Only “puypg” appears to be a new jumble, with the other three having definitely been used before.  The answer letter layout was a fine seven letter jumble.  Good job, David Hoyt!

The cartoon shows them filming the commercial in the pit area of a race track, with a couple of the pit crew changing a tire.  Based on Jeff’s drawing, and part of the dialog, I’m guessing this is Tony Kanaan, the Brazilian racer.  What do you guys think?  Do the photos I chose look like the drawing?  Be well and do good, friends.)   —   YUR

(My Anglo-bias always makes me think this was a woman, even though I do know better.  Does anyone know, is Joan a form of Juan, or something?  It’s a great quote, and it was a fairly challenging solve.  From what I can tell, this is our first quote from the famous artist.  So, we welcome him to the Cryptoquote Club today.  Be well and do good, friends.)   —   YUR
